Burnett County sheriff discusses probe into departmental cover up

by

BURNETT COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A northwest Wisconsin sheriff is saying more about an effort by some of his employees to cover up for a co-worker suspected of child sexual assault and domestic abuse.

Burnett County Sheriff Dean Roland said an investigation was ordered, after dispatchers ignored a report from another agency that a Burnett County deputy was being investigated.

WXCE Radio in Amery said 9 employees were disciplined, and some lost their jobs.

An arbitrator ruled that two dispatchers violated department policies by not preserving 911 calls about the matter, and keeping the deputy’s name out of their reports.

The arbitrator upheld one of the firings, while another was disciplined and re-instated. Roland says two other deputies who were fired are appealing their terminations – and they’re still getting paid.

The sheriff said he hopes those cases can be resolved soon.

As for the deputy suspected of abuse and child sex assault, a decision is still pending on whether criminal charges will be filed. For now, the officer is on paid leave.
